after the blasts of wiuter have

after it has become partaker of the

in such company needed support at
this late day either from certificate

however, as there may le differ

among those who profess to "tie

bred impel feci ions anil deficiencies

nearly nine millions of negroes
who have been intermixed with
our citizenship, there is still a
grievous timoniitof ignorance, a sad
amount of viciousness and a trem
endous amount of laziness and
thrittlcssuess. I lielieve that tln -e
conditions inexorable present to
the white people of the I'liited

neither enlightened self interest

a safe and hcncllcctit solution of the
vexatious negro problem ut Ihe

aided these cIToit and methods
have illustrated the highest and
hcsLcitijtcnship and the most Chris

I cannot, however, keep out of

false pretense in regard to it. That
thirl docs not grow out of haired

seems to me that there is abundant

of charging this denial of social
equality to prejudice, as we usually

member that it has condoned Ihe
negro's share in the humiliations
and sHiliation of the white men
of the South during the saturnalia
of reconstruction days, and has
allowed a kindly feeling for the
negro to survive the time wheu the
South was deluded hv a perilous
flood of indiscriminate, unintelli

siderations relative to the features
of ihe negro question, which may
1st regarded as more in keeping
with the objects and purposes of
this occasion. As friends of the
negro, fully believing hi the pos

advancement and sincerely and
eimliilently laboring lo that end, it
is lolly for use to ignore the impor
